S.E.X. Review by Jessie~ Aqua Follies- Liv Rancourt

The 1950s. Postwar exuberance. Conformity. Rock and roll.

Homophobia.

Russell tells himself he’ll marry Susie because it’s the right thing to do. His summer job coaching her water ballet team will give him plenty of opportunity to give her a ring. But on the team’s trip to the annual Aqua Follies, the joyful glide of a trumpet player’s solo hits Russell like a torpedo, blowing apart his carefully constructed plans.

From the orchestra pit, Skip watches Poseidon’s younger brother stalk along the pool deck. It never hurts to smile at a man, because good things might happen. Once the last note has been played, Skip gives it a shot.

The tenuous connection forged by a simple smile leads to events that dismantle both their lives. Has the damage been done, or can they pick up the pieces together?




Aqua Follies by Liv Rancourt was a historical piece set in the 1950's. I truly loved this story. The characters were someone you could really identify with and the setting was something else. You really felt as though you had traversed back in time with all the details given in the story.

Russell was the typical boy next door who had his life all planned out. Skip was a musician just trying to make ends meet and take care of his mom. It was a time when loving another of the same sex could get you locked up or worse.

It was a true love story from the first smile to the last. Reading this book gave me a good feeling and a sense of hope. Hope meaning that you can really find the one out there for you even when the odds are against you.

I don't want to give any of the story away but this a book worth your time to read. Setting it around the aqua follies was brilliant.

S.E.X. Review~ What the Cat Dragged In by B.A. Tortuga

A Sanctuary Novel
Don’t people know that cats and dogs don’t mix?
Connor Ragbone finds things. Sometimes it’s gold, sometimes jewels, sometimes people. Set in his hippie ways, he never thought he’d find a pack, but with Sam and Gus and their goofy shifter family, he fits right in. Then he finds Brock.
Shifter Brock Herman is undercover alone, working to break up a poaching ring. The last thing he needs is for Connor to wreck his sting. And now the crazy bobcat just won’t go away!
The poachers lead Brock and Connor on a merry chase all over Western Colorado looking for shifter bears, but it’s a lost pup who brings them back to Nevada and the pack Sam and Gus are building. That’s when Brock has to decide whether he still travels alone or if Connor and his crazy family are where his heart belongs.
This follow-up to Just Like Cats and Dogs is a feel-good shifter romance novel where cats and dogs prove they can be way more than the enemies nature has made them.

Just Like Cats and Dogs by BA Tortuga was on my top twenty list of shifter books and book two in the Sanctuary series- What the Cat Dragged In has now been placed there as well.

Connor and Brock were as yummy as Sam and Gus in book one. Connor found things- his instincts and feelings allowed him to roam, rescue, and sometimes bring home- this time he found his mate.

Brock assisted the Fish & Game Department and a few shifter bears in dealing with illegal bear poaching. Together Connor and Brock tore up the poachers and unfortunately themselves.

Ms. Tortuga has a way with her writing- very distinctive and fulfilling- her character development gave depth to all persons involved and made them come to life off the pages.

Sexy men gave way to sexy scenes scorching the e-reader and placing a smile on my face.

All the characters entwined thus accentuating the world building of the series. The addition of new babies, the bears, and the hint of a third book captured my attention and left me wanting for more.

What the Cat Dragged In was charming, funny, and sexy- adding credence to Ms. Tortuga's ability to write a captivating tale.

‘Ménage on the Rocks’ by Willa Edwards
Take two stubborn people, add another determined to make them all happy, mix in a creative use of chocolate and you get one hot Ménage on the Rocks.
As manager of the Rockshore Tavern and Grill, Stella Matthews has to deal with a lot of difficult personalities. But none are more difficult than the Rockshore’s demanding chef Ozzy DeMeer. Luckily, she has her boyfriend Raj Anand—the Rockshore’s most popular bartender—to keep her sane.
But when Raj suggests that maybe the reason she and Ozzy are so combative is because they are attracted to each other, she doesn’t know what to say, but no, no, no. NO! Not easily convinced, Raj approaches Ozzy with a special proposal and together they hatch a plan to give Stella what she really wants—a hot man sandwich—even if she doesn’t know it yet.
The chemistry between the three of them is explosive. But when fireworks in the bedroom turn into even bigger fireworks at the Rockshore, Stella walks away, unwilling to risk her reputation and position for a little bit of fun. Can two determined men convince her that love is worth the risk? Or is their blissful ménage determined to hit the rocks before they’ve even started?
Reader Advisory: This book contains anal sex and inappropriate uses of food.
Excerpt
“He’s my employee. He has to respect me.” That was what their fighting was about. Only that.

Raj nodded. “That could be it. Or…” His words drifted off and she almost screamed, come on, tell me. But she held back, fairly sure she didn’t want to hear what he said next.

He traced a finger down her cheek. Even with the unpleasant turn of the conversation, his touch still sent pleasure tingling beneath her skin. “Or maybe you fancy him?”

Stella yanked back. Oh, she’d been right. She hadn’t wanted to hear that. “Are you kidding me? Of course not.”

“It’s all right, love. You can tell me. I won’t be too jealous.” He waggled his eyebrows, clearly trying to lighten the tension but falling short.

She wasn’t interested in Ozzy. Sure, she’d thought him attractive when they’d first met. Hot even. With a toned body and those deep blue eyes that looked like he knew what she wanted… How she wanted to be commanded in the bedroom. What woman wouldn’t be attracted to that?

Then he’d opened his mouth and the illusion had shattered. More than shattered. The illusion had been smashed, stabbed and spat on.

“I’m not attracted to him. That man is so arrogant I can’t stand to be in the same room as him. We fight like cats and dogs.”

“Or like the girl on the playground punching the boy she has a crush on.”

“If that’s how I deal with attraction, you should be wearing a cup.”

He pressed a kiss to the corner of her mouth but otherwise ignored her comment. He shifted a little closer. The bulge of his erection pressed into her stomach. She would have thought talking about her possibly having feelings—but definitely not having feelings—for another man would cool his ardor. Not Raj.

“All that sexual tension has to come out somehow. Busting out in shouts and anger—“

“About grilled cheese.”

Raj nodded. “Yeah, maybe.”

Stella rolled her eyes. “You’re insane. I don’t want Ozzy. I have no need for a pompous man in my restaurant or my bedroom.”

Raj scanned her face. He could look all he liked. He wouldn’t find anything. She didn’t want Ozzy. She was one hundred percent positive.

S.E.X. Review~ Friends with Benefits by HJ Perry

From friends to lovers 
"You bottom, right? I don't mind if you want to top." 
Did he prefer to top or bottom? Having never done either, Jamie wasn't sure. 
Completely out at work, it was just a matter of time before his family at home found out he was gay. His brother and father were so macho, he worried how they’d take it. 
But Jamie had more urgent concerns, in the bedroom, what did he want to do first? 

Dylan likes guys, a lot. Especially a certain type. Muscular and masculine, like himself, and a man who’s going to take control in the bedroom. 
His best friend is sweet and handsome, but not his type at all, or so he thought. 
When their friendship includes additional benefits, Dylan discovers more than he expected. Jamie looks surprisingly hot without clothes. 

Over 50,000 words of sweet and steamy gay romance. 

*** A standalone title. *** 
*** This book contains characters from the SHS series and the main character, Jamie, first appeared in A Secret Boyfriend. *** 



Friends with Benefits was a quick read and part of the Friends to Lover series by HJ Perry but can be read as a stand-alone. Dylan and Jaime, friends for some time, always found companionship in each other, especially when the other was not dating- not a sexual relationship.

Soon the friendship turned to one with benefits, but I found it to be one-sided. Jamie was attracted to Dylan in all ways possible, but I felt Dylan used Jamie for his own sexual release, and nothing more.

Dylan continuously professed Jaime wasn’t his type-to anyone who’d listen- his mother, friends, etc. Yet, when sex arose (no pun intended), Dylan as onboard. I never connected with Dylan, as his stereotypical jabs unnerved this reader and I found it a bit condescending. Why does there have to be a more masculine an in the relationship and a more feminine one? I was bothered by this assumption.

Once I was able to get past my own misgivings, I found the book charming and cute. Ms. Perry made their relationship work and both men got what they wanted in the end.

S.E.X. Review~ Snowbound Soldiers by Jamie Lynn Miller

With memories of the past coloring their present, Sergeants Connor Finley and Shawn Weller use an unexpected 24 hours together in an isolated cabin on Christmas to help one another make peace with their ghosts and look toward the future together.
(Set between Broken Soldier and Rogue Soldier but can be read as a standalone)


Short read Snowbound Soldiers by Jamie Lynn Miller was sweet and sexy. Set in between book one and two of Shadow Hunt series, Connor and Shawn indulged in 24-hours of alone time in a secluded cabin. 

If you've read Broken Soldier, SH 1, you fully know the torment and tribulations Connor and Shawn have experienced. Snowbound took two damaged men and gave them one joyous day where their only focus was each other and not the horrors of corruption and war.

Ms. Miller delivered sensuality as two beautiful souls found a bit of respite.

S.E.X. Review~ Hunted Soldier by Jamie Lynn Miller

In the wake of the harrowing missions in India and Pakistan, Connor struggles to come to terms with causing the accidental death of a child, while Shawn tries to put Julian’s betrayal behind him.
Adding to the emotional fallout, new trials arise – the appearance of a young man from Connor’s past turned stalker may have fatal consequences for him, while Shawn must confront his former heroin addiction and break free of the hold it still has on him.
The challenges continue when a Shadow Unit undercover op in Bangladesh to shut down the pipeline of terrorists being smuggled into the UK draws Shawn and Connor into a web of lies and deceit from a man hell bent on exacting revenge on the two soldiers – demanding a life for a life.
Will Connor and Shawn survive? Or will the jungle become their final resting place?




Shadow Unit series by Jamie Lynn Miller has fast become one of this readers’ favorite series and Hunted Soldier sealed the deal.

Shawn and Connor, back in the spotlight, a new and daring adventure, making each page more adventurous than the previous. 

Ms. Miller catapulted us into the jungles of Bangladesh as Shawn and Connor fought for their lives- attempting to stay one step ahead of the enemy. The twists and turns had me sitting on the edge of my seat while the sex scenes made me swooning, smiling with a satisfied grin.

Shawn and Connor's relationship was a slow sizzle at times and a burning brush fire at others. The authors ability to traverse emotional upheaval and sensuous love was well written and well developed- permitting the characters to guide her careful words and heady scenes.

Sexy men and captivating characters- Hunted Soldier was a must read.

S.E.X. Review~ Si Te Amara by Jean C. Joachim





La química entre Chaz y Megan fue maravillosa en el libro de Jean C. Joachim, Si te Amara. Consejera financiera conoció al actor, y la historia despegó. Las bromas, las escenas de sexo, y el deseo de mantener lo que estaba cerca del corazón aún más cerca, todo formulado en una historia bellamente escrita con personajes bien desarrollados.

Con cada página y cada palabra cuidadosamente escrita, las escenas saltaron de las páginas y mantuvo a este lector interesado.

Me encantó la historia desde el principio.
